This is one of my favorite Sun King seasonally. A very good fall beer, with a solid malt profile. Always worth picking up some of these when you see them.

A- looks great, Amber color. S- this is the weak part. Just has that lager smell that reminds of BMC products. T- I love it. Nice malty taste, got the lager taste in there a little, roasty favors. Finishes kinda sweet. O- I really liked it. I like this style a lot. And I am a sun King fan. Maybe it’s hard for me to be objective. They did a nice job here too. Get this again NYD.

A well made beer generally but the "Germanic" esters you would expect are not as pronounced as examples from Europe. I would call it to style just not the top tier. Maybe a 36-7.
